The Lynbrook School District’s summer school programs for students entering grades 6-12 provided students with a supportive environment to prepare for Regents exams and receive extra help in basic coursework.
Among the high school courses offered were integrated algebra, intermediate algebra, algebra 2/trigonometry, chemistry, English, economics, earth science, geometry, global studies, U.S. history and government and living environment.
Students were able to attend Regents review classes in earth science, English, geometry, global studies, integrated algebra, living environment and U.S. History. The high school program also attracts a number of students from neighboring districts who pay tuition to the Lynbrook School District to enroll.
At the middle school level, summer school classes reinforce essential skills in reading, writing, math, science and social studies. This program, with its small class size and individualized instruction, provides an atmosphere that helps prepare students for success in the new school year.
